Our trip to Orlando

Two weeks ago today Clark and I were on our own in a rental car driving north on Highway 4 towards Gainesville, FL. No Wiggles music, no little voices talking - just a good book and quiet...

Oh my, we had a great trip to Orlando two weeks ago. Let me just go ahead and say that there isn't much to do there outside of Disney, a little fact I was not aware of. But, Clark and I still managed to have a fun trip. Just being alone with my man and not having to follow any schedule was awesome.

Well, Clark did have a few things to attend at the American Society of Anesthesiologists National Conference, but we still had lots of free time.

here we are before take off going to Orlando - I was very close to zombie-ville due to taking 1.5 mgs of Xanax

On Sunday, we drove up to Gainesville where Clark's grandmother and some other family live. Nani only moved there a few years ago, so it was fun to see her house that she shares with his cousin Shannon. (Note: Shannon is the reason I understand why Andrew's hair has so much red in it.) They made us a yummy dinner.

Clark's aunt and uncle were there as well. Also, his cousin Jeremy, who we haven't seen in about 10 years. We got to meet his wife Rachel and their new little guy, Jonathan, who gave me lots of sweet smiles and conversation.
It definitely took me atleast a day to adjust to not having to worry about anyone but me or what time we did anything. I missed the kids so much at first, then after a few days I was doing great. Clark was the complete opposite - he was in full vacation mode right away and then started missing the kids really bad about the third day. Six days and five nights is a long time to be away! But we really enjoyed it. We owe a big thanks to my sister and Keith, Grammy, and Mimi for keeping the kids for us!


man! I don't check my blogs in 2 days, and look what you accomplish! How was the plane ride? I'm so glad you both had a great vacation... I want to see you soon!
